HELP - Internet Not Working!

Specs: Windows XP

I downloaded IE8, after downloading the toolbar (file, edit etc) was not there. I then restored my computed to before the IE8 download thinking it would go back to normal, however now when i click on my desktop IE logo it goes to open but immediatly closes again!

I checked and although I downloaded IE8, im actually still using IE7, the files for IE8 are installed on my C drive still. - I tried removing IE7 from add or remove programs area, however the remove option was not there, so i uninstalled Service pack 3, then it allowed me to remove IE7. After I removed IE7, I had no internet connection at all, (I thought it may have reverted to IE6 as default). I have now restored my computer to undo my IE7 Removal.

Although I cannot use Internet Explorer I can access via MSN explorer. I tried to download IE8 again through MSn Explorer, but when the download box appears its blank, therefore I cant download anything.

Also my Internet Explorer Icon On the task bar now says "Internet Explorer (No Add Ons)" and also that in my control panel the "Internet Options" section has dissappeared!

Is there anything I can do?? - Can I download IE onto a disk on another computer and upload??

HELP!! - its my brothers computer, hes away on holiday and back on friday - I need to fix it before then!

Thanks in advance!

Do you have the XP cd......If yes then,
Go to control panel---> Add remove programs....

Here select the Add Remove Windows Components.....

From the list select Internet Explorer. This should install the IE from the cd....

Hope this helps .......revert back if this doesnot help....
